Kiwanis Club of Leesburg, Virginia

About Us

Serving the broader Loudoun County region, our club was founded by local business leaders in March 1957. Our organization is full of passionate volunteers including business professionals, young professionals, government workers, parents, and retirees. There is no age limit when it comes to giving back to your community! Please send a message if you would like to attend and learn more about our club and what we do. We welcome visitors at all of our meetings. For an invitation or to RSVP, please email the club at [email protected] or [email protected].

What We Do

We are best known for sponsoring the annual Halloween parade held in Leesburg since 1957. Every year we bring the town of Leesburg together on Halloween for a parade full of marching band performances, color guard, local community groups, the giant pumpkin, and lots of candy for the kids.

We sponsor Key Clubs in 9 Loudoun County high schools. Students run these service leadership programs under faculty supervision, providing much needed community service by sponsoring projects that benefit their schools and the community at large, while receiving valuable leadership training and experience.

Community service is at the heart of Kiwanis—we truly serve the children of the world, beginning in Loudoun County. In our decades of service, we have supported many different organizations. Our club most recently supported INOVA Loudoun Hospital’s pediatric units, Women Giving Back, Loudoun Hunger Relief, Mobile Hope, Loudoun Education Foundation’s FUELED program, JK Community Farms and variety of youth projects.

Our reading initiative to help underserved children in the county has taken multiple routes to provide books and reading strategies for kids and their families. We have passed out over 800 books to kids at Head Start/STEP, National Night Out, Annual Latina Fiesta, INMED, Arc of Loudoun, and in Little Free Libraries. We believe every child has the right to enjoy age-appropriate books of their own.

What is Kiwanis International?

We are a service organization that helps kids in our local communities and around the world. Internationally as a whole, Kiwanis members stage approximately 150,000 service projects and raise nearly $100M every year for communities, families, and service projects. Here is a quick video that explains what Kiwanis is.
